      Good pressing. Nice packaging and liner notes. The sound is good but not great in my opinion. I have a CD from the 80s that sounds better than this vinyl. The difference is quite noticeable. The CD has more clarity especially in the high end and punch in the low end. That being said this vinyl sounds good, no complaints here. The bonus material on the 2nd record makes this release well worth it if you can get it at a good price.

        Hi guys,
        please filter country (Netherlands) and year (1980).
        It shows you 10 pressings.
        Something went wrong here.
        Maybe Dutch people are strong Black Sabbath fans, but mostly these are EU presses.

          This a really good Black Sabbath album and this Norwegian pressing sounds rock. The sound is fresh, warm and crispy.

            This album is utterly gorgeous. One song after another are just masterpieces stacked back to back! The writing, lead guitar work, drumming, basslines, riffs, obviously the mighty Dio vocals, the keys, lyrics, you name it, and its got it all, perfected! It will never get better than this! The 2CD 2021 edition here, is quite the incredible premium way to own this gem. Disc 1 has the album, Disc 2 is filled with awesome bonus and live material you won’t want to miss! Don’t even get me started on the layout, artwork, and liner notes included! This is the ultimate Heaven & Hell package. Cannot wait to dig into Mob Rules next!

                Personally, this is hands down the best CD mastering of this timeless record. Most people prefer the 2010 Deluxe Edition for its darker tone, but the sound here feels less restricted: the guitars, drums, Dio's voice, everything feels more defined and impactful, just compare the beginning of "Children of the Sea"

                  I would love to give this album, Heaven & Hell (H&H),a five star review. H&H still ranks quite highly on my lifelong Top 100 Rock Album list. However, this remastered audio CD recording deserves a 3 star review, tops. The complete Amazon package that I purchased deserves at least four stars because of its great vaiue: $3.99, with shipping included for Amazon Prime members, plus the AutoRip MP3 album available for instant download.

                  I am, BTW, most thankful that the Sabbath-Ozzie break-up happened. Listen to this album, Iommi, Butler and Dio sound positively energized and inspired. Listen to Diary of a Madman and Blizzard of Ozz, but do be sure to take care to listen to the original first issue CD versions - not the ones retouched by Ozzy to remove certain musicians. Ozzy, Rhoads and Co. were also clearly on fire while recording these two Top 100 rock albums, during the same time period as H&H was recorded. The energy infused into H&H lifts everything up and it does sound less heavy and ominous than the older Sabbath-Ozzie albums. In the bargain, H&H rocks full tilt and really grabs the listener by the ear. I'll Keep Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Paranoid and Volume 4 too, but I am thrilled to have this masterpiece in my collection. Dio does sing about princes, kings, demons, witches, and other "D&D" like things, but this bothers me not in the least. The Dio-Sabbath sound does, as another reviewer more eloquently expressed, get increasingly and progressively heavier going on to the Mob Rules and eventually the Dehumanizer albums. The songs on Heaven and Hell still make me want to get up and boogie, almost thirty years after I was initially blown away by this album. The AutoRip feature definitely does add good value for me. However, this doesn't change the fact that I do view and use music for portable listening, e.g. MP3s and music played by my iPod and to some extent my car stereo, quite differently than I use music recordings when I want to listen critically. When I want to really hear an album clearly and focus on it, particularly when feeling a CD out for the first time, I like to take the time to listen to it at home, while sitting as close to the "sweet spot" for my speakers as I can get.

                  I do really wish that my original AAD CD audio recording of Heaven and Hell sounded less muddy and that I could hear RJ Dio's voice more clearly. I am saddened by a Recording Industry that continues to apply a near-standard recording practice that robs music of dynamism and clarity, while simultaneously evincing the chagrin to complain about losing audio CD buyer market share at an ever-increasing rate. Brickwalling causes listening fatigue for folks that listen to audio CDs, that have been recorded that way, at home - on decent 2.1 audio gear with decent drivers. When I say "decent drivers" I mean reasonable home speakers, e.g. even drivers as mundane as the Klipsch Reference series, or the Boston Acoustics or Definitive Technology home audio product lines. Brickwalling a recording does nothing for MP3/iPod/Android listeners that could not be achieved, much better, by employing a portable headphone amp.

                  The practice of Brickwalling DOES succeed at making the Recording Industry look short-sighted, greedy and petty. Worse yet, it completely alienates the community of prospective, serious Audio CD purchasers. Higher bit-rate recordings, Super-Audio CD, DVD audio, Blue ray audio... those are all gimmicks to get us to buy albums again for more money. The real irony is that none of those gimmicks contribute even one eighth as much to the clarity, quality, dynamism, general sound quality and enjoyability of a recording as an attentive, neutral, natural sound engineering and recording effort does. This is true for both live and studio recordings. We are not talking about song-writing, or musicianship right now, just how the music is recorded, and mark my words, this is critical. Well recorded music is worth MORE MONEY to me and to most of the remaining audio CD buying audience. None of those gimmicks are required to achieve a great recording. If you don't believe me, then listen to the original AAD CD audio recordings of Aerosmith's Toys in the Attic, Talk by Yes, Iron Maiden's Piece of Mind and Crash & Burn by Pat Travers. Numerous more modern recordings have been properly engineered and recorded and these recordings sound great on a decent rig, reference Stealing Fire by Bruce Cockburn, Enema of the State by Blink 182 and Third Eye Blind's Blue.

                  It is very possible to clean up a noisy recording and lower the noise floor, or theshold, without resorting to sound engineering practices like Brickwalling. I just hope the Recording Industry, which still has an interested audience of serious, critical CD listeners and buyers, catches on to this fact again, before the audio CD changes from Dinosaur to fossil. Better recordings bear more real value in the marketplace. Leverage that, but be fair and PLEASE quit with the gimmicks and the gouging.

                    A long shot but does anyone know of a misprint in the track listing on this release? I've got this version but the tracks are printed in the wrong order and can't find any info online about misprints.
